The seizure was made Tuesday by highway patrol officers in Palmira, a rural town in Valle del Cauca province, the Government Information System, or SIG, said.
The marijuana was loaded in a container equipped with an electronic system designed to help evade the controls of the authorities, the SIG said, adding that the illegal drugs were being hauled to central Colombia.
The pot was apparently grown on plantations in neighboring Cauca province.
